After years of connecting using “complex digital snakes,” Arrington got to a point where, “I just said that it should be easier, and then I had an ‘a ha’ moment.” That was when he determined how to configure a microphone where it would “have individualized settings, to assign microphones to vocal performers. When they plug their microphone in, it is equalized, and the sound guy doesn’t have to do it anymore. It just works.”

Having previously been a mobile church, he said Resound “had been looking at some other solutions for a while,” to replace equipment that had been aging from its days as a mobile church. “We were looking for something easy to use, and that can be used by many people.”

Acknowledging some of the networking options currently on the market, Arrington said, “It’s based on network architecture, but we took it a leap forward (past alternatives such as Dante), by putting it in the device (microphone).”

Aside from the Resound install, Arrington discussed other churches that have also quickly found the company’s system to be an excellent solution.

Some churches, “have been running (the system) for more than a year,” as a beta test site, noted Arrington. In addition, “one of our newest (installs), a church in Las Vegas, tried to phase our stuff in,” only for a short time later having the pastor opt “to go with the Arria.Live solution by itself, and he hasn’t gone back since.”

Another beta site, one of the company’s first more than a year ago, began where the company “took it down there with some trepidation, but after the first rehearsal, (the pastor) asked to run it on Sunday. We were nervous on that Sunday, but it ran flawlessly. And they’ve not turned on their mixer since then.”

Such examples of churches making quick transitions with the Arria.Live gear, though, weren’t surprising to Williams, based on his early experiences with the new system.

Since begin using Arria.Live gear in the elementary room for Sunday services, “I haven’t been asked to fix anything, and I haven’t had to have one of my higher skilled techs either to do so.” With Williams working out of the main auditorium on Sundays, “to not go to the elementary room to fix something, is huge.”
